Order acceptance

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to cancel or refuse any order for any reason at any stage of the online ordering process, including after an order has been submitted and whether or not the order has been confirmed. Some situations that may result in cancellation include limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified by our credit and fraud detection department. We may also require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. We will attempt to contact you if all or any portion of your order is canceled or if additional information is required to accept your order.

Shipping destinations

Powerful Signal ships orders within United States, including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and other U.S. territories. Canadian orders are handled through our eBay site. (eBay handles customs and other regulatory issues involved with cross-border shipments.)

Stock-outs & substitutions

We make every effort to designate out-of-stock items as out of stock or backordered and to prevent such items from being purchased until we have inventory on hand. If we do not have enough inventory to fulfill your order, we will contact you and give you the opportunity to wait for inventory to arrive, substitute for a similar item, or cancel your order.

If you order a bundled or kitted system that includes a component that is out of stock, we may, at our discretion, substitute an equivalent in-stock component that has similar performance.

Combined shipments

If you select different shipping methods for items in a single order, we may, at our discretion, combine them into a single shipment, as long as the items are delivered on or before your promised delivery date. We may also ship the items separately, if combining them is not feasible under the shipping methods you select.

For example, if you select free shipping for one large item and overnight shipping for three small items, your small items will arrive before your large item as two separate shipments.

Same-day shipping

If Powerful Signal has a product in stock, orders for it placed on regular business days before  ᴘᴍ Mountain Time typically ship the same day.

Carrier time-in-transit maps for the United States

Powerful Signal is located in the southwest corner of Utah. These maps show typical delivery times for packages shipped from our location for UPS Ground, USPS Priority Mail®, and FedEx Ground®. (Click any map to open it in a separate window.)

Example: A package shipped to New York.

An item is ordered Thursday morning and the customer selects UPS as the shipper. The package is picked up by UPS Thursday afternoon. Monday is a holiday. UPS does not include weekends and holidays in their transit time, so:

  • UPS Ground®: Arrives the following Thursday. (Friday + Tuesday + Wednesday + Thursday = 4 days)
  • UPS 2nd Day Air®: Arrives Tuesday. (Friday + Tuesday = 2 days)
  • UPS Next Day Air®: Arrives Friday.

Limitations on express and overnight shipping

During certain high-volume shipping periods (such as the week before Christmas), UPS and FedEx do not guarantee that express and overnight shipments will arrive on their scheduled dates, nor do they offer refunds for late deliveries. Powerful Signal is not responsible for late shipments.

If you are concerned about on-time delivery, please check the carrier’s shipping policy exemptions before ordering. (See, for example, the holiday shipping pages for UPS and FedEx.)

Return policies

Please read this policy so you understand the terms under which products purchased from Powerful Signal may be returned for a refund.

Definitions

In this policy, “Product Return” is when product is purchased and the buyer wishes to return the product for a refund to their credit card; “Product Warranty” is when product is purchased and the buyer wishes to return the product for an exchange due to shipping damage or product failure.

Damaged & Defective Items

All products we ship are insured against shipping damage and will be replaced if they arrive in a damaged condition. Defective items are replaced or repaired based upon the manufacturer’s warranty.

Return Period

Products have a 90-day return period from date of original purchase unless otherwise specified. Call Powerful Signal within 90 days if you wish to return any product ordered from us.

Some specialty products or special order products (such as lithium-ion batteries, signal meters, half-inch coax cable, and custom-configured building systems) are specified as non-returnable and may not be returned for refund.

Return Policy Procedure

  1. Telephone Powerful Signal (435‑634‑6800) immediately if the product was damaged in shipping or if there are product performance issues. Most problems can be diagnosed and resolved over the phone with our technical support staff.
  2. RMA number must be issued (Return Merchandise Authorization) from Powerful Signal for any product being returned. This RMA number is used by Powerful Signal to track the return process and needs to be written clearly on the outside of the shipping box. Do not email a request for RMA number; call us at 435‑634‑6800. Packages received without a valid RMA number or improperly shipped items (such as lithium-ion batteries or hazardous materials) will be refused and no refund will be issued.
  3. Product MUST be in perfect condition. No refunds will be issued for damaged or scratched products.
  4. The product must be in original (new) condition, with no scratches, scrapes, dents, marks, etc.
  5. The product must not have been mounted. Mounted products (such as antennas, coax cables, taps, and splitters) are non-returnable, as the mounting process scratches the product and mounting hardware. Do not mount any product until you have connected and tested the system (a soft-install).
  6. Return with all components. Don’t forget power supplies, mounting hardware, cables, connectors, documents, etc. Any component(s) not returned will be charged at full price.
  7. Pack the return product properly. Significant damage may occur when items are not packed properly for shipment. Loose items can shift in the box and cause damage. Do not use product packaging as a shipping container; use a strong shipping box and pack all items securely. Items damaged during shipment are non-returnable.
  8. Shipping charges. Return shipping and insurance charges are the responsibility of the customer and will not be refunded. A traceable shipping method should be used such as UPS, FedEx, etc. We are not responsible for items lost during shipment.

Maximum Scope of Refund

Refunds on returned products are limited to the purchase price of the components plus any sales taxes incurred in the original purchase. We are unable to refund outbound shipping charges paid by the customer to receive the product(s), including expedited or upgraded shipping.

Restocking Fee

Powerful Signal reserves the right to charge a restocking fee for returned items that have been mounted, scratched, or cosmetically damaged, as well as products that were purchased with the intent to be used briefly and returned (a de facto rental).

We do not charge a restocking fee on orders that are made in good faith and are returned complete and in original condition.

The restocking fee is calculated as:

  • Original purchase price
  • minus missing items (if applicable) at 100% of the item’s retail price
  • minus items damaged beyond the possibility of resale (if applicable) at 100% of the item’s retail price
  • minus mounted, scratched, or cosmetically damaged items (if applicable) at 50% of the item’s retail price
  • minus rental fee (if applicable) of 30% of the order’s total price

Home & Commercial Building Systems

Please note that building systems contain many components (coax cables, antennas, etc.). Only non-mounted product may be returned in perfect condition. Antennas, coax cables, and splitters that have been mounted and/or scratched may not be returned for refund. Please do as much testing as possible before mounting equipment.

Do not mount amplifiers or amplifier boxes until everything is tested and checked out. Lay these items on a table or floor during the testing process.
